I'm pretty sure I have anxiety problems.

A few years back, I began having fluttery heart beats. Went to the doc, had an ECG done, and nothing was found. The doc suggested it was from stress, but I wasn't even all that stressed at the time.

Over the past month I have been extremly stressed. I have had so many things on my mind from essays, to exams, to grades, to my university going on strike, to xmas shopping, to applying to schools for next year.

The past two weeks, I have been incredibly dizzy, like the floor is shifting under me. I've had a headache. I didn't think it was from the stress, because although there is a lot going on, I generally don't feel stressed out a whole lot.

Also I should note, that as a little kid (5-6), I had some similar issues where I would be laying on the couch and feel like I was falling... the doctor then said it may be anxiety--but I was a kid...why on earth would I have anxiety probs then?

Anyways to make a long story short, before I go to the doc-- does this sound like anxiety? What can i do to relieve it. I REALLY don't want to go on drugs...
